Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has favoured bringing in a comprehensive national power policy to provide quality, uninterrupted electricity to all the sectors.

Of the total captive power generation in the country, not even half is being utilised, but yet several parts in the country are living without power, he said on Sunday.

There are also frequent power cuts all over the country and the situation should be addressed, a release from his office said.

Power Finance Corporation (PFC) Chairman Rajiv Sharma, who toured the state for three days and visited power plants and the Kaleswaram project, paid a courtesy call on the Chief Minister on Sunday, it said.

A discussion took place on the power situation in the state and in the country on the occasion, it added.

The financial help extended by the PFC had helped the state a lot for setting up of power plants and revamping electricity related institutions, Rao said, thanking Sharma for the help.Subscribe to Moneycontrol Pro and gain access to curated markets data, trading recommendations, equity analysis, investment ideas, insights from market gurus and much more.
